My pride at being a military retiree, my chicken and dumplings recipe, wearing flip flops with almost everything, traveling everywhere I can and my secret shame - my reality TV obsession.
The first time I was paid as a photographer was for a same-sex civil union in DC in 2009 (shortly after they were first allowed in the district), The photos are far from great but I still love them for what they stand for.
Even after 70+ weddings, I still cry during the father-daughter dance and sigh dreamily at the look on the groom's face when he sees his love for the first time.
My favorite wedding colors: Blush, Burgandy, Navy, Steel Blue & Ivory
My favorite wedding flowers: Peonies, Juliet Roses & Brunia
I'm an Adirondack native with southern sensibilities. You probably won't hear me say "y'all," but I do believe sweet tea is liquid magic and that our mountains are as close to heaven on earth as you can get.
